See, I'm not the only guy in the Big East blogosphere that doesn't have a ton to talk about today. Brian Bennett of ESPN's Big East Blog threw out a couple of posts, namely this one that gives props to the conference's big-time performers in this season's bowls.
I think B-Squared is on the mark for the most part here, but I'd add one more "helmet sticker" for Pitt's entire defense. Sure, Wanny's squad was atrocious in trying to move the football against Oregon State in the Brut Sun Bowl, but you've got to give credit to a defense that shut down a team who had averaged 34 points per game during the regular season. It's unfortunate that the lonely field goal that Pitt's defense let up was enough to sink the Panthers. Good thing Dave Wannstedt is going a different direction with his offensive coordinator....oh wait.
